(Who answers the challenge?) Someone noticably missing from the card is Bradshaw, but I don't think he'll turn up here. Snow/Candido was alluded to.

Well this one was beautiful so shush I do remember one in WCW that he completely undershot and landed on the top rope....thatís more than sketchy

With a bit of luck the show should be up in the next 12 hours or so.

Scott Steiner - Hook him up a nice, long title reign.
Hart Foundation - I'm gonna say that the LOD accept the challenge.
Chris Jericho - Really he's the only one with forward momentum going on.
British Bulldog - Taker appears and costs Ahmed the title again.
Wolfpac - Nash gets involved. The 'Pac kinda have to win here or else they look pretty dead.
NAO - A nice PPV win for the new team, who I think will be the ones to take the titles from the Harts in due time.

Week 4, April 1997
McMahon Stadium (Calgary, Alberta)
ATT: 38,000
Buy: 1.52


Quote:




The show opens with a promo package highlighting the events that have lead up to this evening......Scott Steinerís epic Wrestlemania victory that saw him capture the World Wrestling Federation Championship from the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels......the formation of the Wolfpac as Kevin Nash makes his much anticipated return, as well as the subsequent angles surrounding it, including Nash being forced to stand and watch from the sidelines as Sean Waltman had his arm Pillmanized.....

......we then see the Hart Foundation finally achieve their dreams, as Owen and Bret capture the WWF Tag Team Titles on the same night that the British Bulldog captures the European Championship.....as well as snippets of Bret Harts promo on Raw, in which he claimed that the Hart Foundation were still role models, before we finally go live to the arena, where Jim Ross and Rick Rude welcome us to a jam packed show and a jam packed arena that is covered in pink and black signs offering words of support for the Harts.....

......Ross tells us that this is as pro a Hart Foundation crowd as you are likely to find anywhere.....and as Bret and Owen prepare to issue another open challenge, you e got to believe that anyone willing to step up to the plate, is going to be stepping into very hostile territory......Rude claims that while that may be the case, the expectation of this crowd for a Hart Foundation victory may well be a detriment to the WWF Tag Team Champions.....because all the pressure is in them not to disappoint this rabid home crowd.......

VS.

While the WWF Tag Team Titles may be on the line later this evening, we actually start the show with Tag Team action, as Wolfpac members Scott Hall and Sean Waltman go up against two of the three men that absolutely destroyed them less that a week ago on Monday Night Raw, Brian Pillman and Kane......in fact, after being on the receiving end of a Brian Pillman steel chair special, Sean Waltman has his right arm in plaster, covering his hand and wrist, all the way up to just below the elbow. Rude points out that all that arm is now is a target, and the Wolfpac may well have been better served to simply forfeit this match before it even starts.....

......and he might have a point too....because while they do have the customary babyface shine to start the match, itís not long before Waltman gets caught with a falling armbreaker that stops the Kid right in his tracks.....and from there on out, McMahons Mercenaryís are in complete control. Waltman is a scrappy little S.O.B, and he does have a modicum of success attempting to break free from Pillmanís attack, but when heís in there with Kane he would be struggling to compete with two good arms, let alone one....

......Waltman is taking a lot of punishment, with a good deal of the offence focusing on the damaged arm, and with regular tags Kane and Pillman are ensuring that both men are staying fresh.....so fresh in fact that Rick Rude comments that once the duo have finally put Waltman out of his misery, they should have plenty left in the tank to accept the Harts open challenge should they wish to, but Jim Ross scoffs at that, claiming that fresh or not, youíre not going to defeat Bret and Owen Hart after already competing once this evening......

.......it becomes somewhat of a moot point anyway, because The Kid and The Bad Guy are former Tag champions after all, and despite it looking as though Pillman and Kane were going to steamroll their way through the Wolfpac, Waltman is finally able to capitalise on a Brian Pillman mistake, and tags in a Scott Hall whoís been desperate to get in on the action......and while The Corporate Cannon and the Big Red Monster HAD been relatively unscathed, Hall puts a stop to that as he unloads on both men.....

......he fires off a series of right hands, first to Pillman, then to Kane, rocking the big seven footer, before catching a Pillman cross body attempt and launching the Cannon across the ring with a Fall Away Slam that sends Pillman crashing into the swaying Kane.....which in turn sends Kane staggering backwards where he gets tied up in the ropes Andrť style....Waltman is back into the action now, and as the official does his best to free the monster, the Wolfpac take great pleasure in double-teaming the Corporate Cannon, and it looks as though they might even be able to pull out the victory......at least until Kane frees himself......

.......he drops Hall with a Big Boot, before launching Waltman halfway across the ring, where he collides arm first into the turnbuckles.....and as The Big Red Monster tosses Hall to the floor, where he follows him out and sends him crashing into the ring steps, Brain Pillman again locks in that Fujiwara Armbar that he utilised on Raw.....and once again Sean Waltman has little option but to concede, before he suffers anymore damage to that already injured arm......and itís been a bad week all around for the Wolfpac.

Winner(s): Brian Pillman & Kane

With the Wolfpac down and in serious pain, we head to the back.....where Dok Hendrix is standing by with Marc Mero and the beautiful Sable......Dok says that up next, Marc will be facing off against the Bizarre One Goldust, in a match that Mero himself specifically requested......Mero says thatís right, he says that he got a little bit carried away last week on Raw, heís been having a bit of a tough run at the minute, and he (completely unfairly) took his frustrations out on Sable....Marc says that heís deeply sorry for his behaviour, but Goldust is directly responsible for laying Sable out just six days ago, and tonight, Mero is going to make him pay for that......

.....Dok asks Mero if he has anything to say in regards to Goldustís claim that he was a much more successful wrestler before Sable came along.....but Mero says thatís bull.....he says sure, he and Goldust go way back, theyíve both worked in the same places at the same time......

Ē......but that doesnít mean he knows me....that doesnít mean he knows anything about me......Iím not the same guy I was back then, and Goldust certainly isnít the same guy I knew back then either......and tonight, Iím going to show him one thing, that NOBODY shines brighter than Marc Mero, and Goldust will be nothing more than my first step on the road to redemption.....Ē

VS.

To say Marc Mero has been on a bad run as of late would be like saying Bastion Booger likes the odd snack.....the man canít buy a win right now.....a fact that his opponent tonight, Goldust, was quick to point out, citing his involvement with Sable as the cause for all his problems......and in Goldustís defence, Mero did have more success here in the WWF before the arrival of his blonde bombshell of a valet......although itís hard to come to Goldustís defence, when it was his attack on Cactus Jack that saw that same blonde bombshell valet get floored backstage on Raw this past week.......

......and itís that indiscretion that Mero is looking to avenge tonight, although considering the fact that Mero himself was manhandling the young lady prior to Cactus Jacks arrival, youíve got to think itís slightly hypocritical of him to be casting aspersions on Goldustís morals, when his are just as shady.....but never the less, here we are....

.....speaking of beautiful blondes, thereís two at ringside tonight, as Marlena and Sable both accompany their men to the ring, the question is, which one will be leaving with the winner tonight? Mero actually starts very strong.....Jim Ross speculates as to why he is on such a bad run, because clearly heís a decent worker.....stating that it may now be a confidence issue, stemming from one too many losses, and a victory here could be just what he needs......Rude on the other hand says itís simple, itís all Sableís fault, Goldust said so.....

......The Bizarre One does manage to gain the upper hand, and then spends the entire time he is on the offence taunting Mero for the success he USED to have, before he started letting that ďspotlight hogging harlotĒ accompany him to ringside. Eventually however, Mero has heard enough, and heís able reverse an Irish whip before both men connect with a double Clothesline that puts them both down.....and while Goldust attempts to punch his way back into a offensive position, Mero is there to meet him blow for blow.....and as Jim Ross reminds us, Marc Mero is a former amateur boxings golden gloves winner.....

.....despite the Ďincidentí on Raw, Sable is still firmly behind her man, and seems to have forgiven him for his part in Mondayís escapades, cheering him on as he edges ever closer to victory.....and clearly Marlena is not happy about this, as she stalks her way around to Sableís side of the ring, where she tosses a bag of Ďgold dustí into the eyes of the young valet, which has Sable screaming out in pain......

......Mero heard her cries and turns to see her desperately rubbing at her eyes with a head full of glitter all over her....he looks like heís about to go to the floor and help her, but he stops, clearly more interested in picking up a win, because he waves his hands dismissing the poor valet and turns his attention back to Goldust.......who has recovered enough to catch a hold of Mero and position him for the Curtain Call.....and three seconds later, Mero eats ANOTHER loss......

Winner: Goldust
Rating: B

Quote:




Mero is down, the victim of another defeat, but Goldust doesnít appear to be done......with Sable that is.....because Marlena rolls the helpless young woman into the ring, and with her vision just beginning to clear, she screams in terror at the sight of the Bizarre One crawling across the ring towards her on all fours......Sable backs right up, looking to escape, pleading for Mero to come to her aid, but her retreat comes to a halt when she backs herself right into the corner.....and Goldust just keeps coming.....

.......he crawls forward until he is inches away from the terrified blondes face, telling her that she is nothing more than a scene stealing harlot.....he reaches out and traces a gloved finger around her jawline, before telling her that maybe it was time she was left on the cutting room floor........




















.......and thatís when (luckily for Sable) Cactus Jack comes running out from the back......he comes running down the aisle (as fast as he can run anyway) and slides under the bottom rope.....but Goldust has already retreated to safety to the ringside area, before heading back up the aisle, mission accomplished.....

......Cactus goes over to the still terrified Sable, who has probably never been so grateful to see someone so hideous looking quite so close to her.....Cactus begins to help the blonde to her feet, but heís suddenly yanked to one side, as a furious Marc Mero tells him to mind his own damn business, before grabbing Sable by the wrist and escorting her out of the ring, before dragging her all the way up the aisle and to the locker rooms to a less than favourable reaction from this Canadian crowd.

VS.

Tag Team action again now, and itís the pairing of Mr. Perfect and Barry Windham teaming up to take on the brash and cocky duo, Bad Ass Billy Gunn and the Road Dogg Jesse James, the New Age Outlaws.....although to be fair.....Brash? Cocky? You could almost be describing a younger Mr. Perfect......maybe thatís what Curt saw in these two youngsters when he first took them under his wing......it backfired on him though, because instead of moulding then in his own image, these two Outlaws decided to take their own path, one which involved kicking Perfect to the curb, and convincing Bradshaw to do the same with Barry Windham......

.......The Old Age Outlaws (as the Road Dogg has christened them) will most certainly looking to show Gunn and James that they arenít quite as washed out as the arrogant pairing would have you believe......and in fact, thatís exactly what happens as this match gets underway. Perfect runs circles around Billy Gunn, before finally sending him scurrying back to his partner with that patented perfect high dropkick. The Road Dogg charged at Perfect, but Perfect counters that with a hip toss, before hitting the seated James with that running somersault neckbreaker, before tagging out to Windham.....

.......Windham picks up where Perfect left off, almost taking Jamesí head off with a leaping lariat, before sending the man into the corner and following up with a turnbuckle Clothesline/Running Bulldog combination, that almost gave him the victory had Gunn not been there to make the save. The Outlaws look to be in for an embarrassing night, and even Rick Rude, who would usually be fawning all over the heel team has to admit that Perfect and Windham are getting the better of this one......but then as Jim Ross points out, heís hardly an unbiased spectator, given the fact that he and Perfect have been tight since childhood......finally however, the Outlaws are able to take control of the match as they isolate Perfect.....

......no one sells a beating like Perfect, and he makes these two Outlaws look like absolute mega stars as they slowly start to wear him down....and these two have really found their niche as a team, with the Road Dogg giving a running commentary of what a loser Perfect is the whole time.....for a relatively new team, they utilise every trick in the book.....drawing Windham into the ring to double team Perfect as the official is restraining him......bringing the illegal man into the match the second the referee has his back turned.....stretching the five count to its very limit.....you name it, they do it.....and it looks as though itís going to be the Outlaws night.....at least until Perfect manages to Tag out to Windham.....because the Big Texan hits the ring and begins laying the Bad Ass and the Road Dogg to waste.....

.......Barry is keen to show everyone that he still has plenty left in the tank after the Outlaws recent disparaging remarks, and he soon has Gunn and James eating their words as he takes both men on at once, giving Perfect enough time to recover and get back into the action......

......all four men are going at it now, and as Perfect and James tumble through the ropes to the outside, Windham looks to be setting up Gunn for a big DDT.......























.......which is when Bradshaw hits the ring and almost decapitates his former partner with a Clothesline from Hell.......that should have been a disqualification, but the officials attention was with Perfect and Road Dogg on the outside.....and as he turns around, all he sees is Billy Gunn making the cover.....and this one is all over.

Winner(s): The New Age Outlaws

There is a brief vignette aired highlighting the King of the Ring Pay Per View, which is less than two months away, before we head to the back, where a very confused looking Dok Hendrix is standing by with an equally befuddled Chris Candido.....both men are staring at something just off camera, before Candido finally lets out a big sigh, before wearily stating that.....

Ē.....I thought we had agreed that you were going to stop embarrassing me.......Ē

......the camera zooms out and we are treated to a shot of Al Snow......dressed completely from head to foot in the uniform of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.....(thatís a Mountie to you and me).....complete with a brown felt campaign hat that is about two sizes to big for him......he looks blankly at Candido for a moment before declaring that no, they agreed that Chris Candido was going to stop embarrassing himself......

Ē......and I gotta tell ya Pierre, youíre failing already......Ē

......Candido says that they discussed this, heís not Pierre.....Al Snow is not called Jacques.....and this whole thing is ridiculous......

Ē......ridiculous.......RIDICULOUS......does this look ridiculous to you Pierre? Because it looks like a job for the Mounties to me......Ē

.......Snow holds up what appears to be a Polaroid Photograph, depicting a gagged Head, with a copy of todayís Calgary Herald behind her with the date circled.....Candido asks what the hell that is.....

Ē.....itís a ransom demand....clearly......look, Head is ok for now, but we need to work fast......sheís probably terrified, and I donít know about you, but I donít have a gazillion dollars......Ē

ď......a gazillion dollars?......Ē

ď.......thatís what they want for her safe return.....U.S Dollars too.......Ē

ď........this is ridiculous........the Hart Foundation are issuing another open challenge tonight......weíre not going to be answering that again are we........Ē

ď........what kind of heartless monster are you, we canít be thinking about titles while Head is missing..........Ē

ď.......look, itís simple......tomorrow night on Raw, we will walk down to the ring and call Edge and Christian out......they can either give you your stupid dolls head back......or we can MAKE them give your stupid dolls head back......and we can finally get back to whatever is classed as normal for you......problem solved......Ē


......with that Candido gives another another up and down look, before letting out his second big sigh in as many minutes and simply walking out of shot, leaving Al and Dok alone......the pair look at each other for a minute, and poor Al doesnít look overly happy......

Ē.......but I hired the costume and everything now........Ē

......Dok just kind of shrugs his shoulders, lost for words.....but Al is clearly determined to get value for his money, suddenly standing to attention and beating his chest, declaring that......

Ē.......I AM.....THE MOUNTIE......Ē

.......who is standing by with Ahmed Johnson and Jim Cornette In Ahmedís locker room......there was a time that an Ahmed promo used to fill me with dread, as he mumbled through trying to make some kind of a sensical point.....now with Jim Cornette as his mouthpiece I donít have to worry anymore, Momma Cornetteís baby boy has no such trouble getting the point across, while Ahmed scowls from behind looking like the mean son of a bitch that he is.....

......this is only quick promo, but since Jim Cornette blurts our five words in the time it takes most people to say one, he fits quite a lot in.....he tells the Bulldog that heís gone and poked an Angry Bear with a stick, and while Corny doesnít know if they have bears over there in England (we donít for what itís worth....apart from in zooís) but take some advice from James E Cornette, a Big Bad Grizzly Bear is going to take a bite out of a yapping little puppy dog ten times out of ten.....so tonight, you can kiss your European Championship goodbye, and itís your own stupid fault, for sticking your nose where it doesnít belong......

.......Cornettes next point is the Undertaker.....or rather the fact that the Deadman has yet to answer the challenge of the Big Man.....Cornette says that he knows the Undertaker is scared, but the longer he buries himself away in the graveyard, trembling in fear behind a gravestone, he worse itís going to be......

Ē.....because Undertaker, once Ahmed has put the Puppy Dog to sleep tonight, heís coming for you one way or another.......Ē

VS.

Itís time for the British Bulldog to put the European Championship on the line once again......and itís time for the roof to come off the building, as the first member of the Hart Foundation makes his appearance tonight......and while the British Bulldog might be, well British.....these Canadian fans have certainly adopted him as one of their own thanks to his ties to Bret, Owen and the rest of the Hart clan......

......Ahmed Johnson might be getting a second bite at the European cherry here, but this is hardly the match he was looking for....itís not often that youíll see a World Wrestling Federation Superstar looking past a Title opportunity towards a non-Title opportunity....but thatís exactly what Ahmed Johnson is doing, because he is determined to prove himself against the Undertaker, whatever the cost......

......heís not in there with the Undertaker tonight though, heís in there with Davey Boy Smith, and while this might not be the match Ahmed WANTED, there is still plenty of bad blood between these two big behemoths, after their previous Raw match failed to end with a decisive finish, and then the Bulldog was thereto put a stop to Ahmedís destruction of Rey Mysterio last week.....

......and much like their previous encounter, this is two big powerhouses beating the snot out of each other. Itís a very good match too considering the men involved....Davey Boy has been in some fantastic matches over the years, but usually with a fantastic opponent that could carry the load.....and Ahmed, well, Ahmed isnít exactly known for his five star masterclasses....this wasnít a five star masterclass, but it was pretty close. It obviously helped that the crowd was solidly behind the European Champion, but this was truly a back and forth encounter from start to finish.....

.....neither man was able to sustain a prolonged period of offence as they punished each other both inside the ring and outside. Cornette tried to intervene at one point, stalking up behind the Bulldog with his ever present tennis racquet, but Davey Boy saw him coming and Corny stopped dead n his tracks.....before backing away from the Bulldog with his arms up, (deliberately) tripping over the ring steps, much to the crowds amusement.....

.......he did manage to get his revenge though......because after hopping up onto the apron to draw the attention of the official, he tossed the tennis racquet to Ahmed, who smashes the Bulldog around the back of the head with it, before nailing the European Champion with the Pearl River Plunge........and this one is over.....

.....one......







.....two.......













....::::!!!!GONG!!!!::::....




......and the lights go out before the official can register the three........




....::::!!!!GONG!!!!::::....






.....and when they come back on, The Undertaker is stood bang in the middle of the ring.....Ahmed quickly gets to his feet, but walks straight into the waiting hand of the Deadman, who drives him into the mat with a big Chokeslam......leaving the official little choice but to call for the bell.

Winner: Ahmed Johnson (via Disqualification) (......however, since Titles can only change hands via Pinfall or Submission......STILL WWF European Champion......The British Bulldog)
Rating: B+

Quote:




Ahmed may have finally got what he wanted.....the question is, now heís got it, is he going to end up regretting his recent actions? Because the Undertaker has fury in his eyes......to Johnsonís credit, the Chokeslam doesnít keep him down.....he pulls himself back to his feet, before turning......and walking straight into the open hand of the Deadman again, who looks to be going for another big Chokeslam......

......fortunately for Ahmed, Cornette is in the ring.....and he smashes the tennis racquet across the back of the Undertaker.......not that it does any damage to the Deadman, but it clearly loosened his grip slightly, and it bought Ahmed the time to let loose with a hard kick that punts the Undertaker straight between the legs......

......Taker doubles over in pain and Ahmed takes the opportunity to bail, rolling out of the ring with his manager and heading up the aisle, telling a nearby camera......

Ē.......not today Deadman......youíre going down......just not today......Ē

......Johnson and Cornette retreat through the entrance to the safety of the back, just as the Undertaker straightens up and glares at the retreating figures, running a finger across his throat as a warning to Ahmed Johnsonís impending future.....before dropping down to one knee as the lights fade and saluting the Canadian crowd with his signature pose......it appears as though this one is only just getting started.

We go to some pre-recorded comments from the participants in our next contest, the four way elimination match for the vacant WWF Intercontinental Championship.....Rey Mysterio, who says heís pretty beat up from the attack by Ahmed Johnson six days ago on Raw, and he may be the littlest dog in the fight tonight, but heís got the biggest heart, and tonight heís going home with the Intercontinental Championship.....

......Psycho Sid is up next, and frankly he looks and sounds more unhinged than usual, snapping his head back and forth throughout the brief promo, almost as if heís on the lookout for Raven and his Flock.....before finishing up by saying heís the master and ruler of the world.....and the next Intercontinental Champion......

......Faarooq and the Nation follow Sid, with Faarooq saying that tonight is the first step on the Nationís path to glory....no more will they be held back.....held down.....hidden away.....he says that at Wrestlemania XII he became the first (and still the only) African American to win the Intercontinental Championship......and tonight he will become a two time Intercontinental Champion, when he takes back the title that HE never lost in the first place......

......and last but not least.....Chris Jericho.....Jericho tells all his great fans all around the world not to worry....heís worked out the sudden knee injury that plagued him on Raw (there was nothing wrong with your knee Chris) and heís here tonight, in front of his countrymen, to show why all the fans in the great white north consider him the Greatest Canadian ever to have lived......greater than Pierre Trudeau, greater than Wayne Gretzky.....greater even that the entire Hart Family.......

Ē.....not that they arenít all great Canadians.....theyíre just not Chris Jericho.....and tonight, when they Ayatollah of RocknRolla takes that Intercontinental Championship and wraps it around his sexy waist......heís gonna gonna party like its 1999, in the greatest city on earth.........New York, New York baby......Ē

Fatal Four Way Elimination Rules

Talk about a way to turn your hometown advantage against yourself, Chris Jericho essentially went from hero to zero in the space of one brief promo as far as these fans are concerned.....not that it stops them giving the cheap pop when heís announced from Winnipeg, Canada.....but what should have been a Bulldog-esq reception was actually somewhat of a mixed bag......Sid on the other hand gets a great pop.....as does Mysterio......thereís nothing mixed about Faarooqís reception either....he is positively booed out of the building......

......the referee announces the rules for the match......fatal four way rules, where all four men will be competing at once with eliminations coming via pinfall or submission, until only one man remains....and that man, will be the new WWF Intercontinental Champion.....thereís no count outs of disqualifications in this one, but the official still orders the rest of the Nation of Domination away from the ring area, much to the chagrin of Faarooq.....not that he has time to complain for long, because Psycho Sid nails him with a right hand, and this one is underway.....

.......the four men soon pair off into re-hashes of their respective Monday Night matches, with Sid and Faarooq taking it to the outside, while Mysterio and Jericho to at it in the ring.....neither of those matches had a real conclusive winner, with Faarooq having to rely on the distraction of the Flock AND the help of the Nation to defeat Sid, while Ahmed Johnson bought Jericho and Mysterioís match to a premature conclusion.....the aftermath of which, Rey Mysterio is clearly unimpressed with, as Chris Jericho left him high and dry with an angry Ahmed......

......thereís definitely two completely different matches going on here, as Sid and Faarooq do their best to overpower each other with big hard hitting moves, while Jericho and Mysterio are having an aerial duel in the ring.....at least until Mysterio is able to counter the charging Jericho with a back body drop, that sends the arrogant Canadian flying over the top rope where he crashes down onto both Faarooq and Sid.....seeing his chance, Mysterio scrambles to the top rope and dives at his three opponents, but Psycho Sid plucks him out of mid air, catches him.....and drives his spine hard into the steel ring-post.....Jericho is up but eats a Big Boot.....while Faarooq gets launched into the steel ring steps......and as Sid asks the crowd ĒWhoís the man?Ē Jim Ross concedes that we may well be looking at our next Intercontinental Champion right there.....

.....Sid climbs back into the ring and raises his arms to the crowd.......















......which is when the Flock hit the ring in unison and begin a gang style beat down of the big seven footer, eventually driving him down to one knee.......the Dogs of War pull him back to a standing position, and deliver a hell of an impressive double Chokeslam considering Sidís size.......before the man himself enters the ring......




......Raven......who stands before Psycho Sid, arms outstretched, waiting for the big man to struggle back to a standing position.......before laying him out with an Evenflow DDT......

.....Chris Jericho slithers under the bottom rope to assess the situation, and Raven simply steps to one side, holding an outstretched arm out as an invitation to Jericho, as he and the Flock slowly disappear into the crowd......and as Jericho quickly covers Sid.....surprisingly, the largest man in the match, is the first to be eliminated........


Eliminated: Psycho Sid


......we are down to three.....and after eliminating the giant that is Psycho Sid, Chris Jerichoís confidence is through the roof.....that is to say heís even more arrogant than before......and actually joins forces with Faarooq to double team Rey Mysterio.....the crowd seems to be turning on their countryman more and more as the match goes on, but Jericho doesnít seem to care, heís got gold to win baby.....

.......poor Mysterio is really going through the ringers here as Jericho and Faarooq put the boots to him, before Jericho finally launches Rey at Faarooq, who slams the little luchador hard to the mat with the Dominator......Faarooq makes the cover......but Jericho inexplicably pulls him off. The Nation member asks Jericho what heís doing, telling him it doesnít matter who gets the pinfall, itís elimination rules......Jericho wants the glory of eliminating Mysterio though.....he wants to make the cover.....Faarooq could care less either way, telling Jericho to go ahead. Strutting around the ring briefly first, Jericho does a little two step shuffle, before arrogantly placing one foot on the chest of Rey Mysterio........that Dominator was some time ago now though, and as the official counts two, Mysterio reaches up and pulls Jericho down for a surprise roll up......and three seconds later, Chris Jerichoís arrogance has got him eliminated......


Eliminated: Chris Jericho


.......Jericho is furious.....furious and embarrassed as he rolls onto the outside, where he proceeds to throw a tantrum so big it would make Shawn Michaels blush.....meanwhile back in the ring, Rey Mysterio has got a renewed energy since eliminating the self professed Ayatollah of RocknRolla, and goes on a tear on Faarooq, who looks as though at this rate is going to be embarrassed by the former Light Heavyweight Champion himself.....

......Rey is flying around the ring, hitting Faarooq with moves that the bigger man simply doesnít see coming....Faarooq may have all the strength, but all the strength in the world means nothing of you canít catch hold of your opponent to begin with....finally little Rey drops Faarooq with a dropkick to his knees, before climbing up to the top rope, looking to finish the man off.......




........which is when Chris Jericho wraps a steel chair around the back of his head......


......Mysterio crashes down near the centre of the ring, and is easy pickings for Faarooq to drag him back to his feet.....and crush him into the mat with a devastating Dominator, before making the cover......and finally bringing some gold back to the Nation.....

Winner: ......and NEW WWF Intercontinental Champion......Faarooq

The Nation of Domination come storming out from the back to congratulate their leader, with Nelson and Kama hoisting the victorious Faarooq high up on their shoulders as he shows off his brand new Intercontinental Championship......as the Rock tells a nearby camera that this is just the start......thatís not the only thing happening however.......








.......because Rey Mysterio has slowly started to come around on the outside, and is dragging himself to his feet using the ring steps.......and in a terrible display of poor sportsmanship, Chris Jericho once again crashes a steel chair on the youngster, this time driving the steel across Mysterioís back......he screams at Rey that he ruined it.....he ruined everything......before slamming the chair across the back of the masked luchador a further three times, before throwing it down in frustration and storming to the back to a chorus of booís, leaving the Nation of Domination to celebrate in the ring......I think itís safe to say that Chris Jericho, is not such a fan favourite anymore......

Itís time for Billy Kidman to put the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship on the line again.....this time against former Champion Christopher Daniels.....this is most certainly Kidmanís biggest test to date during his short tenure as Champion, because Daniels is no pushover......although surprisingly he IS alone, the rest of the Flock have decided to stay under whatever stone they crawled back under after assaulting Sid earlier in the evening......

.......for a relative unknown, Kidman has been on quite the tear as of late, and with this, his third title defence in four weeks, heís giving even the Hart Foundation a run for their money.....he starts out strong in this one, but Christopher Daniels, while still a relative newcomer to the World Wrestling Federation, has a wealth of experience under his belt, and he is soon able to take control of the match......

.....a lot of people have been expecting Kidman to drop this title pretty quickly, claiming that the newcomer is too green to carry an entire division on his back......and in fairness, they might be right.....but for as young as he is, and as green as he is, heís certainly got the heart of a Champion, because nothing Daniels throws at him will keep him down......the two men are pretty evenly matched when it comes to aerial abilities, but when it comes to mat work, Daniels could quite literally wrestle rings around his opponent, which is probably why he adopts a more ground based offence here, fighting to his strengths.....

......Kidman fights back on a number of occasions, doing his best to pick up the pace of the match, but Daniels always seems to find a way to cut him off and slow things right back down, before setting Kidman up for the Angels Wings.....the Champion backdrops his way out of it however, before catching Daniels with a dropkick right to the chin that sends him scrambling to the outside, where Kidman follows up immediately with a baseball slide that sends the Fallen Angel crashing into the crowd barrier......

......the two men get back into the ring and begin duking it out, with Kidman surprisingly getting the upper hand, before Daniels hits a good old fashioned thumb to the eye, followed by a spine buster. He signals that itís all over as he makes his way over to the corner and goes for his patented triple jump moonsault.....but Kidman moves at the last second, meaning Daniels connects with nothing but mat......the Champion climbs to the top himself, and leaps with a rather sketchy looking (satisfied Kijar? ) Shooting Star Press, that never the less connects enough to give the Champion another successful title defence.

Winner: and Still WWF Light Heavyweight Champion.....Billy Kidman

Kidman climbs the second turnbuckle and holds the Light Heavyweight Championship proudly in the air, when suddenly he is blindsided by the oncoming Scorpio, who nails Kidman in the small of the back with a forearm strike, before climbing up behind the Champion and driving him to the mat with a second rope belly to back suplex that drives all the air out of Kidmanís body. Scorpio gets to his feet and drags his helpless victim closer to the corner, before climbing up to the top rope, splashing the life out of young Billy with an impressive 450 splash.....

......he climbs to the outside to retrieve the Light Heavyweight Championship that Kidman dropped during the initial attack, picking up a microphone on his way back into the ring. He stands over the top of the fallen Champion, and drapes the Title Belt over his shoulder, before proclaiming that like Faarooq said, tonight was just the first part......the Intercontinental Championship has come home to the Nation, now itís time for the Light Heavyweight Title to come home to the very first Light Heavyweight Champion.......and that mans name, is Scorpio.....

......Scorp drops the title abruptly onto the chest of Kidman, before kicking him a few times for good measure and heading to the back, message sent.

.......the pair come to a halt at the top of the ramp....before slowly making their way down the aisle. Jim Ross is stunned, proclaiming that the Nature Boy and The Enforcer are here......and theyíre both dressed to perform.....

......Bret smirks at that, telling Flair that yes, without a moments hesitation he can say just that......after all, the last time he and Ric Flair were in the ring together.....in Canada finally enough......it was The Hitman defeating the Nature Boy to become the World Wrestling Federation Champion, just before Flair tucked his tail between his legs and ran off back to WCW......

......Flair flashes that big toothy grin at that, telling the Hitman that one win, does not a legend make.......

Ē.......twelve times the man......twelve time World Champion......THATíS what makes a legend......THATíS what makes you the best......because ANYONE can have a good day.....and anyone can have a bad day......but only the very best in the business can get to the top of that mountain twelve times......and believe me, the only reason you were EVER the man around here.....is because The Nature Boy left......Ē

......Flair says that while The Hitman defended that Championship against the likes of Papa Shango, Skinner, and I.R.S, the Nature Boy defended against REAL opponents.......Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes.....Ricky Steamboat......Flair is twelve times the man, competing against genuine legends.....not genuine nobodies.....and the one time you had a credible opponent, a man that Flair seeís a lot of himself in, The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels.....Bret choked, lost the belt.....and NEVER got it back.....

Ē.......so look me in the eye and say it again.....tell me that youíre the best there is, the best there was......and the best there ever will be......Ē

Itís safe to say that when the Harts walked into the arena tonight, the last thing they were expecting was to be wrestling Ric Flair and Arn Anderson......but as Jim Ross pointed out earlier, that is exactly the danger with issuing an open challenge, you never know whoís going to answer the call......

.....this isnít the new generation.....far from it in fact, because apart from Owen Hart, whoís a sprightly 31 years of age, these arenít spring chickens.....even the Hitman is only a few months shy of his 40th Birthday.....but what it is, is seasoned veterans prolific in the art of storytelling.....what it is, is two of the biggest names of the 80ís against two of the biggest names of the 90ís......and what it is, is a very, very good match......

.....itís safe to say that both Flair and Anderson are past their primes.....both men are banged up.....and both men are most certainly in the twilight of their careers.....but my god you wouldnít know it tonight.....the former Horseman have both been utilised terribly by WCW in recent times, emphasised by the fact that (as Bret pointed out) the Nature Boy had to do the job for Bam Bam Bigelow, while Anderson, who really should be reserved for the bigger matches due to his declining abilities, was relegated to wrestling Duke Droese on free tv a regular basis.....clearly these two have something to prove, and thatís exactly what they did......

......it helped that the crowd was positively electric from the moment the Harts parted the curtain, and they stayed white hot for the entire duration of the match, especially while Flair and Anderson used every Horsemen trick in the book to cut the ring in half, isolate Owen Hart, and work over one limb (in this case the right leg of the King of Harts) as the crowd work themselves into a frenzy.....

......Owen finally manages to make the hot Tag to his brother, and Bret hits the ring, taking on both Flair and Anderson at the same time......and what started out life as a somewhat friendly test of who the Ďbestí really was, soon descends into an all out war, as Owen soon rejoins the battle, going toe to toe with Arn Anderson, while The Nature Boy and The Hitman go at it on the opposite side of the ring.....

.....the official is rapidly loosing control of this one, because the tag rules appear to have gone out of the window as an out and out brawls breaks out.....so much so that all four men wind up on the outside of the ring.....and they stay outside the ring, with Owen and Anderson finding themselves exchanging right hands in the crowd......and after Bret Hart clotheslineís Ric Flair over the safety barrier, they too join their respective partners amongst the fans, who are still going crazy........and while the official has granted plenty of leeway in this, he finally has no choice but to perform the mandatory ten count......which neither team even attempts to break, as they continue to battle in the crowd......this match is over......the action however, is not......

Winner(s): No Contest (double count-out)

......because these four men are so engrossed in their battle, that they donít even realise that the match is over.....most crowds would feel robbed to receive a blatant no contest in a championship match.....but this Canadian crowd is hotter than ever....probably due to the fact that they are getting as up close and personal to the action as humanly possible.....eventually the two teams finally make their way back to the ringside area, where Flair has Bret propped up against the apron, lighting up his chest with a series of knife edge chops......before Bret reverses the position, delivering a series of chops of his own.....until a sea of officials and backstage workers finally come running down the aisle to separate these two warring teams.....

.......it takes some time, but order is somewhat restored as the four men are held apart.....they want to continue fighting however.....and judging by the chant of ďlet them fightĒ from this hot crowd, they are keen to see the action continue too......and the Harts do in fact manage to break free of their holdings long enough to deliver a few more shots to Flair and Anderson.....but the two teams are finally dragged to the back, as Jim Ross sends backstage ahead of our main event of the evening......

.......Dok turns and goes to knock on Shawnís door, saying maybe he will have more luck with the Heartbreak Kid......the moment his knuckles hit the door however, itís clear that itís not fully closed, because it opens just wide enough to see the sight of Shawn Michaels and the Big Red Monster Kane......Michaels wants to know where the hell Kane was when Brian Pillman was getting assaulted......obviously though he gets no answer from McMahonís mute Problem Solver.....

So with Kane off on a Kevin Nash hunt, itís finally time for our main event of the evening.....and for the first time in over twelve months, Shawn Michaels is walking into a WWF Title match as the challenger, NOT the champion.....and Shawn has got to be feeling the pressure here, seeing as he is already 0-2 in singles matches against the new WWF Champion, Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner.....both of those matches were good, and it was always going to be hard to top them.....but believe me when I say, this one blows both of those matches out of the water......in fact, this may well be the best match period in recent years, certainly since my tenure anyway......this was without a doubt an instant five star classic.....

......the match gets underway, and Scotty is clearly itching to get his hands on Michaels.....The Heartbreak Kid didnít hold the World Title for twelve months however without knowing how to both dictate the pace of a match AND frustrate his opponent into making a mistake in the process, which is why he instantly goes in for a side headlock, grinding hard against Steinerís skull.......Scotty is one strong son of a bitch though, and from the side headlock position he powers Michaels up in the air.....and violently tosses him across the ring.....before running straight through him with a hard Steinerline.....

......taking a leaf out of the newly arrived Ric Flairís book, Michaels begs off, drawing Steiner in where he pokes a finger right in his eye, before Irish Whipping the Champion hard into the corner.....no sooner has Steiner hit the turnbuckles however, he comes roaring straight back out, turning Michaels inside out with another Steinerline, followed by a big press slam that sends the Heartbreak Kid rolling to the outside for a breather.....Steiner rolls out to the floor to give chase but Michaels has the speed advantage and nails Steiner with a series of right hands, before hopping up onto the ring apron and flying off with a double ax-handle attempt.....it doesnít work however......because Big Poppa Pump catches hold of him and locks in a big bear hug.....Shawn finally manages to break free with another gouge of the eyes, but Steiner immediately rams him spine first into the corner post, before rolling the overwhelmed challenger back into the ring.....

.......feeling that heís got this in the bag already, Steiner whips Michaels into the ropes and goes for the Frankensteiner....but Shawn is able to hold onto the ropes to stop his momentum, and Steiner catches nothing but air as he crashes on to the mat.....seeing his opportunity to finally take control, Michaels sets the Champion up for a slingshot, sending Steiner tumbling over the top rope. He doesnít go all the way out however, catching himself on the apron and pulling himself back to his feet, but Michaels launches a flying forearm smash that sends Scotty flying off the apron and crashing into the safety barrier on the floor. Michaels follows him out and bounces Steinerís head off that same steel structure, before Sunny hops up onto the apron to distract the official, while Shawn takes a steel chair and dents it over the head of Big Poppa Pump, who collapses in a heap......

.......Shawn rolls Steiner back into the ring, and now the cocky attitude is back as he begins trash talking the Champion, telling him that heís gonna send him back to the Tag Team division where he belongs.....he works his opponent over on the mat, before attempting to whip Steiner into the corner.....Scott reversed it however and itís Michaels that takes the ride, with Steiner charging in after looking for a corner Clothesline.....Michaels gets the hell out of the way however, and Steiner hits nothing but turnbuckle, and almost loses the match as Shawn rolls him up from behind for a long two count......Steiner just gets his shoulder up in time and struggles to his feet, where he receives a little bit of a taste of his own medicine, as Shawn Michaels hops up onto his shoulders and flips him over with a standing hurricanrana, before unloading with a series of blows from a mounted position on the mat.....

......Michaels heads up top and comes flying off with an elbow drop, but only scores a two count.....he backs off and climbs to the second rope, waiting for Steiner to waste some more energy by forcing himself into a standing position, only to drop him straight back to the mat with a flying Bulldog, before rolling up to his knees and hitting a Scott Steiner double biceps pose, before flipping off this Canadian crowd for booing him.....he goes back up to the second rope, looking for another Bulldog, but that was going to the well one too many times, because this time Steiner is expecting it, spinning round and catching hold of Michaels before tossing him halfway across the ring with a big belly to belly suplex that finally draws him a breather......

......the two men take the mandatory standing ten count to its limit, both rising at 9 to come together in the middle of the ring where they exchange rights and lefts......Steiner gets the better of it, but Shawn again goes to the eyes, backing Steiner into the corner and attempting an Irish Whip.....Scotty reverses it and this time the Heartbreak Kid goes inside out in the corner, landing on the apron....Scotty charges but receives a shoulder block to the gut that doubles him over, allowing Shawn to slingshot himself into a sunset flip pinfall attempt which Steiner powers out of at two and a half.....

......with both men back in the ring Michaels runs the ropes, but Steiner leapfrogs over him, before catching him out of nowhere with a Frankensteiner.....Big Poppa Pump makes the cover, but Shawn is too close to the ropes and Sunny reaches into the ring to place Michaels foot on the bottom rope, breaking up the pin.....Steiner turns to scream at Sunny.....who screams herself....in terror......as she runs as far away from Steiner as possible.......

......Sunny has a Shawn Michaels style tantrum on the floor, (leaving Jim Ross to proclaim that he can see why the pair get on so well) and manages to draw the attention of the official just long enough for the Heartbreak Kid to hit a low blow on Steiner as Big Poppa Pump is pulling him to his feet......Steiner drops like a sack of s*it, and Michaels staggers back into the corner, where he begins to tune up the band......Steiner can only force himself up to a kneeling position, but thatís all Shawn needs to let fly with the Sweet Chin Music......from his kneeling position however Steiner ducks it as Michaels foot goes sailing over the top of him, before reaching up and pulling Shawn back and down, rolling him up in a tight pinning position for a one.....a two.....and despite Shawn Michaels desperate attempt to escape......a three.....this one is over, and what a match it was.

Winner: ......and STILL WWF Champion......Scott Steiner

An exhausted Scott Steiner is handed his WWF Championship and holds it high in the air in victory, before turning around........

.....had Michaels hit that a few moments ago, we would probably be looking at a brand new Champion about now, but he didnít, so all he can do is punish Steiner after the event.....which is exactly what heís doing now, before finally stopping and indicating furiously to the back........









.......which is when a blaze of fire indicates the arrival of the Big Red Monster Kane.....he stalks his way down the aisle and into the ring, where Shawn orders him to drag Steiner to his feet.....

.....Kane obliges, and it doesnít look as though Steiner can do anything to defend himself as Michaels tells the Big Red Monster to finish him......

.......Kane opens up his big paw and reaches back.......before dropping Steiner to the mat, turning......and snapping his hand around Shawn Michaels throat.......

.......the Heartbreak Kid goes wide eyed in shock, screaming at Kane to let go, asking him what the hell he's doing........which is when Kane reaches up with his free hand and suddenly pulls his mask off his head......



























........and itís soon clear that itís not Kane at all......but Kevin Nash......Jim Ross says that the Big Red Monster must have found Big Sexy in the back after all......and it clearly didnít go according to plan........

........Shawn screams at Nash that he canít be here......he canít be within 50 feet of the Heartbreak Kid......but Nash just smirks.....and drives Michaels hard into the mat with a big Chokeslam......

.......Nash turns at looks at Steiner, whoís pulled himself to his feet and draped the WWF Championship over his massive shoulder.....Steiner simply smiles and backs up into the corner, where he pullls himself up onto a seated position on the top turnbuckle, taking the best seat in the house to watch the action unfold, as Nash picks up a microphone.......

.......he stands over Shawn, before finally telling him that he really should have read the fine print on that restraining order.....

Ē.......but then you never were known for your brains were you Shawn.......thatís a US restraining order buddy.......valid in the United States of America only......and I donít know if you noticed, but we ainít in the USA......weíre in the Great White North......and here.......that restraining order ainít worth the paper itís printed on.......I told you......I told Pillman......I told Kane........youíre all dead men walking.......well......two down.......one to go......Ē

.......and with that, Kevin Nash proceeds to give Shawn Michaels the biggest beating of his life......Michaels has been hiding behind that restraining order for the best part of a month now, and Nash has had to stand back and watch as his friends have been decimated week in and week out, while Shawn Michaels has been strutting around scott free......and tonight itís payback time.......Nash finally picks up Michaels and tosses him abruptly to the outside.......











.......where he absolutely destroys the Heartbreak Kid with a Jacknife straight through the announce table......and only then, as Michaels is buried under a pile of broken wood and monitors, is Kevin Nash satisfied, climbing over the safety barrier and disappearing into the crowd as Scott Steiner raises the WWF Championship in victory inside the ring, and the show comes to a close

So that was In Your House.....and what an In Your House it was, with a number of really good matches......a great match from Ahmed and Davey Boy......an amazing tag team match between the Hart Foundation and newest arrivals Ric Flair and Arn Anderson......and then there was the match of the year candidate.....the main event between Scotty and Shawn, that blew even their Wrestlemania match out of the water.....Scott has grown so much as a performer over the past 6 to 8 months, really coming into his own as a singles competitor....and while working week in and week out with some of the biggest names in the business has seen his popularity soar, itís his improvement in psychology as a singles wrestler that has really impressed me......Shawn, well Shawn is Shawn......incapable of putting on a bad performance.....although he wasnít thrilled at the prospect of putting Steiner over for the third time in a row, but even that was only a slight grumble, and when I explained how the finish was going to go down he was fine with it......

.......by now everyone has heard the word that the Nature Boy and the Enforcer have arrived in the WWF.....Iíve got to be honest, there was some trepidation on my as to how well the pair would perform in our new style of product, but I shouldnít have been worried.....sure both men are past their best.....but then even past their best they will still run rings around some of our guys.....i wasnít sure what I was going to do with the two more traditional wrestlers in todayís WWF, but then I figured that The Harts were as good a place to start as anywhere, especially since Bret and Ric never really had a programme, even when Bret won the World Title from him......and what better combination to face off, than the man who claims to be the best there ever was, against the man who perhaps IS the best there ever was......

......Al Snow and Chris Candido our out another great segment, Perfect and Windham put the red hot New Age Outlaws over.....and Faarooq FINALLY won that gold that heíd been promising......I know a lot of people were expecting Chris Jericho to walk out with the gold, but that was never going to happen.......Chris needed to lose tonight to fully embrace his heel turn.......and it went exceptionally well......if you can turn a Canadian heel in Canada, then you know youíre on to a winner......

......all in all, that was truly one of the best shows we have produced.....now we just have to carry that momentum into Monday Night.....

Comments: With the Kliq handling their business, I think it's time to pull the trigger completely on a Bret heel. Bret wins, but fails to release the hold for a DQ loss.
